Spittle bug survey

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-48383730

 

"Scientists are calling for volunteers to record where and when they've seen spittle or spittlebugs, in gardens, meadows, grasslands and woodlands..."The results will be used to map the distribution of the insect to better understand how Xylella (possibly spread by spittle bug) might enter and spread in the UK.

Dr Alan Stewart, Reader of Ecology at the University of Sussex said we need to learn as much as we possibly can about what kinds of plants they feed on, what habitats they occupy, and where they are in the country.

"So, ultimately, if the worst possible happens, and the disease does arrive in Britain, we'll be able to make some really good predictions about how it's likely to spread and how quickly."
